Whereas showing on “The Late Present” on Monday evening, MSNBC host Pleasure Reid claimed to host Stephen Colbert that Fox Information anchors “need to kill their very own viewers” by pushing anti-vaccine rhetoric.
With out naming any particular hosts, Colbert requested Reid to react to hosts on different networks who he declare query the validity of the COVID-19 vaccine. Reid took this chance to throw the hosts of Fox Information, who frequently get much better rankings than she does, beneath the bus.
“If you see different anchors on completely different networks questioning whether or not vaccines are good or dangerous for you and never revealing whether or not they’ve been vaccinated, do you have got any specific response to that?” Colbert requested.
“Primary, it doesn’t make sense to me why of us at that exact community, which I feel everyone knows who we imply, would need to kill their very own viewers,” Reid responded.
“Their viewers are older. Their viewers are extra vulnerable to COVID. And I don’t perceive what the purpose is of killing them as a result of everybody on air at Fox has been vaccinated,” she added. “I’d put any cash on it. They have been vaccinated first. I’m positive they shoved little previous girls out of the best way to get their vaccines first. They’re all vaccinated. They’re residing in distant cabins. … They’re all vaccinated.”
“And so, in the event that they’re telling you to not do it, it’s important to ask your self why they don’t care about you once you’re their base,” Reid continued. “And once more, the people who find themselves saying this, what’s in it for them for their very own individuals to die?”
Reid additionally lashed out at Fox Information throughout her personal MSNBC present on Monday night.
“It ought to come as no shock many COVID circumstances are individuals who watch Fox Information hosts … who downplayed the pandemic,” Reid said. “In line with Media Issues, between June twenty eighth and July eleventh, Fox personalities and visitors made a complete of 216 claims undermining or downplaying vaccines.”
Evidently Fox Information resides rent-free in Reid’s head! I assume she’s bored with watching them get way more viewers than she may ever hope for on a measly community like MSNBC.
